Drummachine sequencer plug-in suggestions?

Thu Nov 07, 2019 12:33 am

Hi!

I just got MidiFighter Twisteer - 16knobs that can be pressed as well, nice leds, super solid machine. I wanted to turn it into drum machine sequencer I can play with on the fly without touching mouse.

I am in Logix Pro X and Ultrabeat has a seqencer but you cannot control it with MIDI!??? So I need MIDI FX plugin that is MIDI friendly and has:

16 note pattern note on/off that runs with the main transport
note shift (+/- miliseconds) per note
and couple of CCs of my choice out of this plugin to control other paramenters per note.

I got free version of HY-MPS (https://hy-plugins.com/product/hy-mps/) which does the basics but I have some timing issues and does not support custom CCs

Numerology/Thesys are little bit of an overkill and I could not make it do all the things I need - will have a closer look.

any other suggestions?

Thanks!
D

What do you mean Ultrabeat's sequencer couldn't be controlled via MIDI?

Well, when I am trying to Midi Learn a Note on/off in the sequencer part of Ultrabeat it does not detect it and I cannot assign a controller knob to it

Notes are already pre-mapped from C1 ~ C25 in Ultrabeat.
You could try to set your MidiFighter using the utility (available from the support website), if possible, otherwise you could use the transpose parameter in the MIDI region or the track's inspector, or use a MIDI Fx Transposer or Scripter plugin to transpose or remap as desired.

This will just trigger drum sounds as one shot I believe (not at the mac to test it) I am aiming to turn on/off notes at the patter at the sequencer part at the bottom

This is only for pattern switching not editing the actual patterns - I want to create the patterns without mouse just with the controller - e.g. I send CC or Note on to the ultrabeat and it will activate first note in the pattern another message will activate second one etc... When trying to learn this control Logic says "Command not available because there is not destination parameter"
